Haval is the best realtor we've ever dealt with and we have dealt with a LOT! This is our 6th new home in 15 years. We would (and do) highly recommend him to anyone we know is in need of a realtor.


Eugene 10/11/2022

It was an absolute pleasure working with Haval and his team. Haval was very knowledgeable of the current market trends not only in Crystal falls but all over the Leander / Austin Metro area. Haval and his entire team made selling our house a smooth and pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Haval for anyone purchasing or selling a house.


Suzana J. 06/22/2022

Haval was awesome to work with from beginning to end. He was always available and very communicative and knowledgeable. With his help, we were able to get our home sold pretty quickly. We had multiple offers and showings just a few days after our home was listed. We would 100 percent recommend Haval and Realty Austin North.


T B. 06/11/2022

This will be our second /third realty transaction using Realty Austin north, specifically working with realtor Mr. Haval Abbas. We bought our home with Haval as our realtor, & now he has helped us sell our current home & purchase a new one. Haval is an expert in his field, super knowledgeable about this area of Texas, extremely prompt, reliable, professional. Highly recommend him and his team at Realty Austin.


Kevin 06/10/2022

He was awesome! What more can I say. We would and do recommend him to all our friends who may be thinking of buying or selling.


Nancy & Bill Duncan 05/09/2022

We can not say enough good things about Haval Abbas! From the moment we got connected with him, he has been nothing but supportive and attentive to every detail of buying a home. He called us right away and got to know us personally, what we were searching for, and went above and beyond to find us the perfect home. We have not arrived yet, and he continues to help us out with referrals for things we may need, keeping an eye on our house until we arrive and still being available for any questions we may have. Haval referred us to a great mortgage guy, the loan process was painless, quick, and easy. When we did find a home, Haval was on top of it and got our offer in with all the documents required, and secured our new home in a very timely manner. We will refer any and everyone to him in the future, and should we decide to relocate we will 100% call Haval! He is a gold star in our book, and your company is very lucky to have him!


Melanie Styron 04/02/2022

We have known Haval since 2011. This is the 2nd home he has helped us purchase. And he has also helped us find 2 rentals between the house searches. We are always so impressed with his level of professionalism and care. We consider him a good friend now and have recommended him to countless family members and friends. As far as realtors go, he is the best. Exceptional in all ways.


Clarisse B. Lilley 03/29/2022

Haval Abbas of Realty Austin was my agent for 2 of my home purchases and 1 home sale for a span of 9 years. Words are not enough for how grateful I am to Haval for helping me out from start to finish. He knows exactly what would best fit my needs on my home search. He guided me every step of the way. He gives smart advice among the choices available. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help in buying or selling your home.


Erik Gallagher 01/24/2022

Haval was absolutely fantastic! Haval was by far the best agent I've had by a long shot! (I've bought and sold 5 homes now) Haval was extremely thorough, thoughtful, attentive, and provided guidance and extensive knowledge to help us navigate this CRAZY real estate market. I can't say enough good things about his service. I will recommend him to everyone I know. (ok, I'm new to the area and don't know anyone...but one day I will). 


Victoria Brown 12/02/2021

Haval Abbas has exceeded all expectations I had ever hoped for in a realtor. I never thought the process of buying/selling could be so easy! Haval was extremely thoughtful in our needs for both selling our current home and buying our new home. We got to know each other pretty well, and toward the end of the house searching journey, Haval understood exactly what we were looking for. You can easily see that Haval does not listen to respond. He listens to understand the needs of his clients. I want to note that this is the highest compliment I could ever offer a realtor. Haval was incredibly respectful in assisting on what we can do to help our home sell fast. I am not experienced in the process of buying/selling and had a ton of questions frequently, and Haval always took the time to respond quickly and efficiently and helped me understand the process and what to expect. Whenever we had concerns about anything, we could easily jump on a call with Haval for easier explanation or text if that was preferred due to working hours on our end. This is absolutely the best real estate agency we have ever worked with, and plan on utilizing Haval the next time we need to sell/buy. I could ramble on about how wonderful our experience was with Haval, but I'll stop here.


Noreen N. 11/05/2021

We are so thankful to have been referred to Haval Abbas from a family friend. We relocated from another state and from the moment we first spoke with him we knew he was the perfect person to help us through this big life-changing decision. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and has an attention to detail that is so important when making such a big purchase. This summer the market was very much not in the favor of buyers like us, but with his calm guidance and excellent negotiation skills, we were able to find a beautiful home in the neighborhood that we love. He really listened to us & got what was important for our family. He goes above and beyond & even helped us secure a rental when we first moved out here and continues to help us with finding vendors and anything else we need. He's now become a friend and someone we would highly recommend to anyone we know.


Roy Moran 10/05/2021

Haval was great! Haval is like family, always there when you need him. If ever I should need real estate help, he will be the one and only one I will go to. That includes family. Thanks, Mr. Haval for your help.


Noreen & Scott Nishimura 09/14/2021

We love working with Haval and would highly recommend him to anyone we know (in fact, we have already done this). We especially appreciate his kindness, attention to detail, knowledge about EVERYTHING, and honesty. We moved across several state lines with 3 kids and a dog, and from the first conversation with Haval, we knew he was going to help us do it as smoothly as possible. Best. Realtor. Ever.


Scott and Jennifer Giles 09/01/2021

We could not be happier with Haval and the sale of our house! He is very personable and knowledgeable! He made the whole process smooth and painless for us. He’s truly one of the best!


Mauricio Somerville 08/12/2021

Haval went above and beyond. Great experience having him next to me the whole time, great follow-up and updates. A very high asset to your team. I will make sure I spread the word out for his continuous success.


Jeff Ryan 06/03/2021

Haval is outstanding! He's become a true friend during this process. He is incredibly poised and calm, which was super helpful during the crazy market, remote, etc. He is incredibly responsive and offered to do things for us that I'm sure to go beyond the typical responsibilities of a Realtor... picking up our keys, working with vendors, checking on the house when empty.... there's much more. Throughout the process, we felt like he had nothing but our own best in mind. Haval was flexible but also convicted in his expertise and knowledge of the market, which also showed that he wasn't just "yes-ing" us for a close on the most expensive purchase we've ever made. Haval is great, and we're looking forward to having a drink with him when we move to Austin!


Paula B. 04/20/2021

I am a Broker in Hawaii, and my husband and I had an excellent experience during the sale of our home with Haval Abbas at Realty Austin. I can't speak highly enough about Haval as our real estate agent. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected. Thank you so much, Haval, for a seamless transaction!


Tommy Nguyen 04/01/2021

This is my 6th transaction with Haval. This one, in particular, carried very unique circumstances, and Haval supported me throughout the transition. Not to mention, this came with a difficult banking experience towards the end, and Haval was quick to step in to find solutions/resolutions. I wouldn’t use any other agent for my real estate needs.


Roy Moran 03/23/2021

Haval is DA MAN! He has been very helpful in assisting my wife and I in selling our 2 homes. He will also help us sell our primary home later this year. We will also use his services to help us look into buying our retirement home. We would use no one else.


Melanie S. 03/02/2021

Not only is Haval our Realtor, but he is also our friend. He helped us secure a rental when we moved from Florida to Texas. He helped us find a home in Leander. And just recently, he helped us with our home's sale and the purchase of a new build in Rough Hollow. He is incredibly knowledgeable and reliable. We consider him our Realtor and friend for life.


Tara Carreira 01/05/2021

We recently worked with Haval to purchase a home in Austin, TX. This is the 5th home purchase my husband and I have made, and by far, Haval is the best Real Estate Professional we have ever worked with. He is very hard-working, honest, and extremely knowledgeable of the Austin area. You will always be able to reach him by his mobile, and he is extremely thorough in all aspects of the transaction. What separates Haval from other agents the most, in my opinion, is his sincere loyalty to you as his client. He looked out for our best interest in ensuring necessary repairs were made even when we were out of state. I highly recommend Haval to anyone who wants a top-notch expert. 5-Star without question!


Sandra Amezquita 12/17/2020

Haval Abbas exceeded all my expectations! He’s a great person to work with. He really cares about his clients, very compassionate and understanding, knowledgeable, and patient. I have worked with Haval on other real estate transactions as well, again exceeded all expectations. Realty Austin is lucky to have Haval as their Realtor. I nominate him as Realtor of the Year!! Thank you, Haval, for going that extra mile for your clients!


Terri Grissom 12/08/2020

We are so grateful to Haval Abbas for helping us find the perfect home! Haval is absolutely incredible to work with! Shortly after our initial contact, it became obvious very quickly that finding the right home for his clients is something that Haval takes very personally. We had some special criteria that we were looking for in a targeted area, and Haval really went the extra mile in our search. Haval made the entire process easy and fun! He is an extremely gracious man that provided so much help and support along the way. It is very obvious that Haval has a passion for helping people find their dream home!


Roy Moran 11/20/2020

Mr. Haval Abbas is the best Realtor I have ever had the chance of working with. He is a straight shooter, compassionate, and always has an ace up his sleeve when it comes to having an answer to any problem you might run into. Needless to say, I will be doing more business with him since we have two more properties to sell. He is the man.


Deborah Pedersen 09/25/2020

We first started trying to sell our house in 2015. We rented for a while instead, after no offers for several months. The renter did $40K worth of damage and had to be evicted. We tried two other Realtors before we found Haval without any success or helpful marketing of our house. Haval was fantastic to work with, and most importantly, got our house SOLD. He is professional, dedicated to his clients, honest, and on top of everything. We can't sing his praises enthusiastically enough. He is by far the best we've ever worked with, and we've bought and sold lots of real estate for more than 40 years. Anything we could do to help Haval, we would gladly do.


Mark Muccini 08/06/2020

Our experience with Realty Austin was outstanding! We recently sold our home during a very difficult time! The pandemic brought a whole new set of challenges, which the realty team managed flawlessly. Our agent, Haval Abbas, truly set the bar for providing best in class customer service. His support did not waiver throughout the ENTIRE sales process. Communication was clear and concise. We appreciated that fact that he LISTENED and RESPONDED to our concerns/questions. He kept us on track and updated on where we stood throughout the process. He EARNED OUR TRUST and did not let us down. We could not ask for better! We are very thankful to have had such a great team working on our home sale.


Roger Saraiba 07/14/2020

Haval was the best Realtor I’ve ever used. We will use him and recommend him to everyone we know. I can honestly say there is nothing more he could have done. Haval embodies customer service of days gone by. I can’t recommend him enough!


Marilyn Forsell06/08/2020

Haval is the best! He went over and above the call of duty. Even now, after we have moved in, he is immediately available to help us with questions or problems. We are extremely happy he was our Realtor!


Carol and Mark Huard 05/12/2020

My husband and I were so happy to partner with Haval Abbas for the sale of our house. In fact, this is the 3rd time we've worked with him, once as a buyer and twice as sellers. For our most recent listing, we had the unfortunate timing to decide to sell our house just a week before the coronavirus shutdowns began. But thanks to Haval's house-prep advice and marketing, our house went under contract, for OVER asking, on the first day it officially listed! Haval kept us informed every step of the way, between the buyers and us, between the title company and us, and between the mobile notary and us. We couldn't be happier with the whole process.


Tommy Nguyen 11/14/2019

There’s no Realtor better than Haval. He works on finding the best deal possible for the situation and ensures every detail is looked after heading into closing. He takes a lot of the buying pressure off your hands, literally. All you have to do is show up for the signing, knowing he has covered all other aspects of the purchase process. You’ll have peace of mind when you work with Mr. Abbas.


Cheryl Rawlinson Ruff 02/01/2019

We have worked with Haval Abbas on buying two homes and selling one home. Haval is absolutely the best. We consider Haval, a great friend, and he knew what we wanted better than we did on the purchase of two homes. He is loyal, smart and not afraid to make sure his clients are well taken care of in the sale or purchase process. We highly recommend Haval, and he will be our Realtor for as long as we are in the Austin area.


Dan Daniels 07/01/2018

This is the third time we have used Haval so that kinda tells it all. We have been very happy every time we've worked with Haval and highly recommend him and Realty Austin.


Matt Santangelo 07/01/2018

Haval Abbas was simply amazing. From start to move in he provided excellent facts, data, and insights across all key aspects of the process. Vendor recommendations were spot on. He was extremely accommodating with busy works schedules and kept us on track with key deadlines. I've moved seven times around the country, and he's been by far the best Realtor I've ever dealt with. I'd recommend Haval to anyone. He is a true professional.


Lore Loucks 06/01/2018

Let me start by saying my experience with Haval was second to none. I could not recommend anyone more than I than I would recommend him. He went so far and above what a Realtor is expected to do to make sure my transition was smooth. Haval not only took care of his end but was in contact with my agent in California to make sure the whole process was smooth. In a very frantic process, Haval gave me a sense of peace. I would only use Haval for my future real estate transactions.


Chris Samojen 06/01/2018

Haval offers a true concierge real estate experience where his expertise is unmatched, he only provides maximum effort, and his communication is literally non-stop around the clock. Haval helped us sell our home in Round Rock and find our forever home in Leander. He made this all happen with minimal effort on our end and somehow made the timing work out perfectly with both homes closing within days of each other. If you are looking for an outstanding concierge level Realtor, then Haval is your only choice.


Tommy N. 05/01/2018

Worked with Haval on my home purchase. I cannot say enough about Haval's professionalism. My move from California to Texas happened suddenly. Prior to my visit to Austin, Haval and I had conversations on the phone about what I was looking for. By the time my family visited, he narrowed down our home visits to a few areas in the greater Austin area. Unbelievably, we found the home we were looking for on that visit and made an offer the following week. Haval made the process go so smoothly. He was involved every step of the way and made this the smoothest close on a property we ever experienced. Living out of state had its own issues but having an agent like Haval made it so easy. I highly recommend having Haval be your trusted partner in the home purchase process.


Cheryl Rawlinson Ruff 04/01/2018

This is our 2nd transaction with Haval, and we are working on our 3rd currently for our new build. Haval is very professional and gets the job done. He exceeded our expectations on both of our transactions, and we highly recommend him.


Taylor C. 02/01/2018

My husband and I were looking to purchase our first home in Austin and got connected with Haval Abbas. We communicated through text initially to answer some basic questions and then he asked if he could give us a call. As soon as we spoke, we knew he was \the one.\" He was so down to earth, extremely knowledgeable and we could sense his expertise with every question he answered. Plus, his lighthearted sense of humor was key during the roller coaster that comes with buying a home. We kept flip-flopping on the area we wanted to live, and he was easygoing through it all. He knew it was our first time and walked us through every step of the way. We felt like we were indecisive but he never complained or rushed us. We knew we were in great hands! Once we found the house, we both loved, Haval kicked it into high gear and got all the background information and even reached out to the listing agent all while vacationing with his family. Start to finish; we had zero delays (every \"speed bump\" was handled quickly and with prompt communication). We were as naive as it came to buying a house and Haval educated us and gave us the best homebuying experience! While we are happy in our home, when the time comes for the next one, Haval will be our guy. We've recommended him to everyone we know, and for those who are looking who already have a Realtor, I quickly learned how blessed we were to have Haval because going over and beyond is just part of his DNA. We wish for nothing but the best for Haval and his team; it's a great group to work with! "


Tim and Alice Lewis 01/01/2017

We really appreciate the service that Haval provided to us! We are from out of state and didn't have a lot of time to search for a home. He was very instrumental in our purchase of our home dealing with the lender and the builder. I was truly thankful that he was there for our walk through he found things that I would have never noticed. He went out of his way to help us, and we are truly thankful for that. I would and will recommend him to others in our company that will be moving to Texas.


Natalie Tucker, Google Review 01/01/2017

A great realtor can be very difficult to find, but I was lucky enough to find Haval. Haval Abbas has helped me and my family buy and sell quite a few houses. Haval is motivated, has a great attitude, and is quite good at what he does. He is always working behind the scenes to get the best deal possible all the while making the entire process smooth and easy for his clients.


Gracie Barrera, Facebook Review 09/01/2016

Haval was awesome! He made the selling process easy and was there to guide me through every step. He was always available to answer any of my questions and sent regular status updates. My home sold while I was on vacation and he took care of all the details. I didn't have to worry because I knew I had someone I trusted handling everything. If you are looking to sell your house, you need to contact Haval!


Jane Bushell, Facebook Review 07/01/2016

We have worked with our agent Haval Abbas in the purchase and sale of 3 homes. He is so personable, professional and in touch with the market in this area. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who needs to either list or purchase a home. He works tirelessly to promote, advertise and show your home. The entire Realty Austin office are so professional. Besides being the ultimate agent, he is a pleasure to work with due to his warm personality.


Martha Albritton 05/01/2016

From the very beginning, Haval built a productive relationship with me by proactively creating a win-win partnership. Every step of the way felt like a cohesive team working towards the same goal. Haval communicates effectively verbally and in my case and very importantly, in written format. Since I am currently in Bangkok, Thailand, we had a 12 hour time difference, and a lot of our communication took place via email which sometimes can be very difficult to build relationships or to communicate a message effectively. This never was a problem for us since his written communication was always clear and specific and always polite and considerate. As I mentioned earlier, I really did feel like this was a partnership and we were able to make sound decisions because we were aligned on the outcome and level of risk I wanted to take in negotiating a property. In the end, Haval delivered results in finding and negotiating this property. There is no doubt that I will recommend Haval to friends and colleagues who are interested in moving to Austin. Realty Austin is very fortunate to have Haval representing the organization.


Robert Paul 10/01/2015

We did our original purchase with Haval and it went great. We had to sell the home to relocate and had a short timeline. He was awesome! House sold day of MLS listing. He walked us through everything and was very prompt in answering all of our questions.


Ben Chavez, Google+ Review 10/01/2015

We looked around for a lot of Realtors and found Haval. I have to say that without a doubt he has been the best person anyone could ask for when is comes to buying or selling a home. Extremely knowledgeable and we will be using him again in the future.


Jeff and Natalie 10/01/2015

Wow, where do we start? We've dealt with Haval on two sales and one purchase in the last couple of years, and he's also brought us referrals for our custom home building business. Our previous opinions of Realtors in general was not good to put it mildly! Haval has been an absolute godsend in his counsel, experience, and \making it look easy.\" An outstanding negotiator and people-reader, as long as we're buying, selling, and building in the Austin area, Haval is our guy! "


Jessica Amezquita 09/01/2015

I have had a very good experience with Haval. I initially found him through the Realty Austin Home page when I began my home searching on the internet 2 years ago. At that time I was just playing around looking at homes and dreaming of a new home. Haval made contact with me and initially I did not respond because I was not a serious buyer yet. He never gave up on following up with me when I did at some point respond back to him. Because of his great efforts to still stay in touch with me despite my long breaks of not responding to his emails due to my crazy work schedule this is what led me to contact him when I was serious about looking for a home. I can be quite indecisive and he was so patient about it all! When I asked him to look up information on homes he was on it! He is dedicated to his work and he was so prompt in his responses with me responding to me day and night literally. Meeting Haval I knew he was the real estate person for my Husband and I. He is not pushy with this customers at all and he is very easy to get along sharing his very vast knowledge of the real estate market and of the homebuying experience. He is genuine and diligent about his work. I have also seen his interactions with other realtors out there and he shows consistent professionalism along with advocating for Ben and I when needed. I felt confident that we would find the right home with Haval guiding us. He is serious about his customers and it shows. We appreciate you Haval. Thank you so much from day 1 to the last day on our closing day. I will always refer Haval if someone I know needs his services.


Satish P., Yelp Review 06/01/2015

We constructed a new home and this is our first. Haval is our realtor and any thing I say about him is very less. He guided us from the beginning to the end and was always available to our concerns and questions. Since we were new to building/ buying a house, we always had a ton of questions and doubts and oh man, what a professional he is.. Never ever I have seen him frustrated, amused at us. If I were a realtor, I knew I cannot do a job 25% like him. He became a friend, guide and family to us and we still take his help even for petty things. We are so happy to know him and would recommend any one/ every one to him. He just rocks... He is always on our side Thanks Haval for every thing you did for us.


Satya 06/01/2015

Just one word, Haval is amazing. We would love to have Haval at any time and have already referred many clients to him.


Glen and Patti Woods 12/01/2014

We contacted Haval through the Internet from our home in Virginia. He called us promptly and we began the process of becoming acquainted. When we traveled to Texas, Haval was very patient and flexible as we had to change plans several times due to a death in the family. When we were able to travel to Austin on short notice, Haval made himself available and spent the day getting to know us better and showed us homes/lots until almost dusk. He had also done a lot of work behind the scenes to be ready for us. Haval's service was top notched; he always had our needs and desires in mind until he found us the right home. We are very pleased with all the extra time he gave us. He helped us with the inspection while we were in Virginia and followed up to ensure items the homeowner needed to fix were completed properly. Overall, our experience was outstanding.


Russell DeMarco 10/01/2014

Haval was great to work with. He listened to what we were looking for initially and directed us to various new subdivisions that would fit our needs. Haval kept in contact with us while our new home was being constructed. He was with us when we did our walk through and was extremely helpful with our punch list for the builder. I would recommend Haval because he was great to work with.


Shannon Anderson 07/01/2014

This is our third time being represented by Haval with a new purchase also in the works. Our first purchase was bought sight unseen after Haval spotted the gem. Having taken the time to really understand what we were looking for he was able to find us the perfect place. Our third transaction was the sale of the same home and the current review. His ability to see the future value in a property is amazing! He worked tirelessly through a few slow months on the market always remaining connected and relieving our anxiety. He then managed to negotiate a deal that was literally perfect for us. The best thing is that he negotiates in a manner that doesn't add unneeded stress for the client. He knows exactly how to handle the various personalities, cultures and egos involved in a sale. Our buyer was without an agent and Haval spent an enormous amount of time nurturing the deal by answering their numerous questions and odd requests, even staying up late into the night emailing them while on vacation to make sure we got it nailed down in time. You will not find a more adept, hardworking realtor with amazing integrity that you can trust implicitly to go to bat for you. I've recommended Haval many times over the past few years and frankly can't fathom why you'd use anyone else.


Brian McDonald 07/01/2014

I truly enjoyed meeting, working, learning and ultimately moving into our house all with the absolute professionalism and friendship. I would recommend Haval to anybody new and old. We now consider Haval a friend of the family and will continue to stay in contact with him for years to come.


Jennifer M., Yelp Review 07/01/2014

The highest praise for Haval Abbas and Realty Austin! We recently had to relocate to the Austin area and did not know where to start when it came to looking for a new home. Thankfully, I found Haval. From the very beginning he listened to our needs and preferences. He had a list of houses for me look over the day after we met. He worked to get to know us and figure out what area of North Austin and what type of house would best fit our needs. We only had one weekend to find a house. Haval cleared his schedule and spent the entire day driving us all around North Austin. We found a home that day! It was new and construction already in progress. The experience with the builder over the next few months would have been very difficult if not for Haval. He fought for us and kept the builder in line with all they had promised. He was there any time we needed him - day or night. He kept in constant contact with us through email and text. Because we were not in the Austin area while the house was being built, Haval would go by regularly and check on things for us. I don't know any other realtor that would go the extra mile like Haval did and continues to do. Just today, he called to check on us and see how everything is going. We closed 2 weeks ago and he is still following up. I not only look at Haval as our realtor but also as our friend. He is the one to ask for when moving to the Austin area. Thank you Haval!


Sarah and Jim Gagliardi 04/01/2014

It has been such a pleasure working with Haval. My mother is moving to Austin, so he actually helped us find two homes, one for her and one for us that we are currently building. We started working with Haval back in May before we moved from Minnesota to Austin. Since day one, he has been great! He got to know us, and would specialize searches or listings based on what he knew about us, not just our criteria. He's looked out for us along the way and helped us get acquainted to Austin. We are continuing to work with him on our own home that should close at the end of May (which will make it a year that we will have been working with him!). We are so lucky to have met Haval and have him work with us. We can only say good things!


Maria Hughes, Facebook Review 01/01/2014

Haval Abbas is a superb Realtor! He has helped us with several home sales and purchases over the years. He is professional, responsive and experienced, and best of all he is an excellent negotiator. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or purchase!


Mohammad Nikpour 12/01/2013

Haval Abbas was our realtor on a house we just moved in. He was extremely knowledgeable, humble, professional, and patient. Everything you need in a realtor these days. He never pressured us into buying a house, picking a lender, or anything else. Every piece of information he gave us (houses, pricing, communities, realtors, etc..) was worth knowing. I'd almost want to buy another house just to deal with him again. Worked with around 15 realtors in my lifetime. He is far and away the best, and we could not have asked for a better realtor. Realty Austin is extremely luck to have him.


gary, Yahoo! Review 08/01/2013

Haval Abbas worked with us for over 2 years. We started looking before I retired so there was no hurry. He arranged for us to look at houses from Georgetown to Bastrop to Dripping Springs. He did a great job. Once we settled on a house he suggested I lower my bid, and it was accepted so he saved me some money, too. Then he recommended an inspector that we were very impressed with. Overall Haval did a great job.


Mac and Cathy Statham

Haval Abbas was great. He took very good care of us and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

This is the second time I have worked with Haval and Sara and they are amazing. What a wonderful asset for your company! Haval is an absolute life saver. Whether is was to answer one of our ten million questions, getting us a superb deal, being a liaison for us and the builder, dealing with a less than upstanding lender, helping with walk throughs, or the hundreds of other things we requested, he always went above and beyond. I will recommend Haval and Sara to anyone I know who is buying or selling. In fact, we hope to be using them again in a year or so to help my sister purchase a home. Hang on to those've got something very special there!

We think they communicated extremely well and worked very hard to satisfy our needs. We received very personal attention throughout the process, together with knowledgable, professional advice at every level.

We worked with Haval Abbas while looking to buy a house in Austin and our experience with him was fantastic! We did two visits to scout the various neighborhoods, and Haval spent two full days with us showing us various parts of town. He scheduled appointments at several homes in advance. Our visits were extremely well planned and we were able to quickly decide the neighborhood and builder. Haval did a great job of negotiating price, providing constant updates, working with the builder, and in general staying on top of everything during the construction of the house. With all the recent financial regulations, there was plenty of angst during the Closing process but we were well prepared thanks to his planning and advice. In summary: We were extremely pleased. Haval is patient, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Couldn t ask for more. Two thumbs up! We know who we are calling the next time we are in the market! Thank you to Realty Austin for having a great group of Realtors.

Haval has a way of making the home buying process seem effortless. He went above and beyond our expectations and I'm proud to call him my friend as well as realtor.

Haval has been so great in helping me out from my home search even after the closing. He is very helpful and always provides information that he thinks I will need. He is always accessible for any questions. I just came across his name in the Realty Austin website and I'm so glad to have made the best choice of getting his services. He is totally awesome. I will definitely refer him to my friends.

In many ways, I now see Haval as much as a friend as my advisor/guide through the home purchase process. Since we had to sell a house in California and had no idea how the market would treat that end of what we had to do in order to move, patience and understanding were very important on the part of Haval. Fortunately, he possesses both to an ideal level. Haval is also a consummate professional who understood how to deal with the vagaries of moving from nothing to a decision point with someone without a clear goal. He framed the alternatives, gave us options to consider, and attempted to find out as much as he could about us and who we are so he could better understand how to narrow the options to a better likelihood of a fit as we moved forward. Haval helped negotiate very well received upgrades at little or no additional cost.  In my mind, there is little doubt that I could not have gotten the full benefit of all that I now have without his more than competent assistance.

Haval went above and beyond for us!

Haval was amazing! He's worked with us for about 6 months out of state. We trust his guidance, experience and opinion so much that we ended up buying a place sight unseen. He answered all of our questions not only about real estate, but school, restaurants, subdivision, everything about relocating. I was beginning to feel sorry for him with the number of times I contact him in a day. He is always happy to answer and made us feel like we we're his only clients and a top priority. I have already recommended him to a friend who will be selling their home. My parents will be working with Haval in the near future to find their retirement home. My sister plans to work with him as well when the time comes to purchase her first home. Haval was an amazing negotiator and help us get an outstanding deal on our home. Truly a fabulous experience. He's a rock star!

Haval was very helpful in helping us find the perfect house. I liked that Haval took the extra time to bring me into the Steiner Ranch Golf Club and introduced me to the manager, showed me the restaurants, gym, golfing area etc. Actually seeing the lifestyle helped enforce my decision to buy there. He also explained the school systems, the Austin real estate market and the lifestyle. Haval also took the time to show me the lake and good resteraunts and pointed out areas convenient to shop. Since we are from out of state, he did the house inspection and when our financing took longer than we expected, he was creative in arranging for us to rent the house until the financing came through. Had he not thought of that idea, we wouldn't have the beautiful house we found. So we appreciate that.


Paulette and John McGregor

We love Haval. He has been with us along this journey since before we decided on Lakeway as our home. He is patient, knowledgable, and compassionate. He went to bat for us all along the process and helped us get what we wanted. Just a super guy! Since we were buying a new construction home, I wasn't knowledgable of the need for a Realtor. So glad we saw the light and brought him on board.

My husband and I can't thank Haval Abbas and Realty Austin enough! Haval was a GREAT agent to work with and he went above and beyond any expectations that we had as first time home buyers! I would recommend him 100 times over if I could! We will definitely be staying in touch!!


Adam and Raquel Racusin

Haval and Sarah are a fantastic team - they guided us through the entire process smoothly. When we encountered bumps in the road, they were there to help every step of the way. They were great advocates at getting me the house I wanted at an amazing price. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Haval was outstanding throughout the entire process - best agent I have worked with.


Mike Bushell

Haval was above and beyond anything I could have expected out of a realtor. This was not just buying another home for myself it was actually my very first time buying a home and Haval made it an incredible experience and most importantly helped me enjoy it rather than stressing. He has become a family friend and someone who will also have a place in our family. For my fiancee and me he made us feel as if we were his only clients. He actually was in the process of help my parents' buy a home and my mother told me to call him. Best decision I ever made. I have never met someone work as hard and as often as Haval, from never forgetting a single detail, to the late night reminders of meetings the next day. If there were more people like him in my own industry it would make life and business much easier. I am jealous that you as a business owner get to have such a great employee, he is someone that no matter what should never be lost from your business. In terms of referrals I have a few friends moving to Texas for work and another coming home from war and have already told them they have to use Haval. In a time where finding honest and hardworking individuals who will also go the extra mile now in day is hard to do you have one of the true genuine gems in business.


Sarah Ragsdale

Haval was wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone I know in need of realty services. There is not one thing I would have changed about my experience with him. he was attentive to my needs, he consistently answered questions/concerns in a timely manner, and had a very friendly, personable attitude. I love the search we were able to create.
